    Oh yeah , forgot to mention...any man wearing a "speedo" just looks down right nasty. Never did like the looks of it, even back in the day. Actually, all the women that I've talked too over the years think they are "gross". I have never met one woman who liked them, not one. And also I am a happy camper that my husband enjoys my metal detecting. He is looking forward to going with me some when I get to Wyoming. He keeps an eye out and tells me of places that he notices that might be of interest to me. He is a geologist, so being outside looking at all types of rocks and formations are his thing. He teaches me things and I teach him what I find out.

    Metal Detecting
    Just to clarify here, I don't own a speedo, nor do I ever plan on wearing one, my family just keeps teasing me about it saying that if I'm going to go geek I may as well go for the full package and wear a speedo while I MD. Loving this conversation tho, haha!

    I'm lucky in thay my wife fully supports my hobbies. She has some rules though. Like if I crash my motorcycle make sure it kills me because she's not spoon feeding me for the rest of my life. You know basic stuff like that!!!

    Seriously, it's a good relationship where freedom to try and do new things doesn't have a payback. WE both understand what the priories are and no hobby is in that category.

    So don't keep us in suspense! Did ya marry the detector or what?! .... Funny stuff, my wife has also made comments similar to your wife's actions, but she loves the bling I bring home from the beach. Dirt huntin' not so much, but she gets it.

It is a shame she cannot support the things that I enjoy doing. All of you guys with spouses that support your hobby don't know how lucky you are.
    Short story,I was out detecting @ oceanside from 7:00-7:00 (12 Hrs.).This man told me I should stop over @ Poncho Beach lot's of people go there,so I worked my way down the coastline of beaches.I call my husband to let him know I'll be home around 8:00,he tells me drive safely,I'll see ya when you get home:Packed my gear up,heading home until I see this sign Poncho Beach,then it dawn on me the guy told me to go there..What do you think? Of course I have to stopAs soon as I started detecting couple swings this woman comes over frantic,I lost my car keys in the sand,,please help me!!So I'm excited b/c this is my first time helping someone with my Mxt Pro.She showed me the area where it might be, a few swings & keys in my scoop!! The look on her face--Priceless,,her friend said it was magic,,I said "Thank God" it was he that brought me here,the odds on this:headband:She thanked me very much & I headed back home..All those hours, I found a lot of trash,about $12.00 worth of coins,lost car key--which to me was Priceless
    When I got home I told my husband the story,,he was a so proud of me & so happy I had a great time..My husband normally goes with me, while I'm detecting he sits in his van working on his computer or reads,I try not to stay out to long anywhere from 4-5 hours or he drops me off @ a beach & picks me up later,when he goes out on job walks,when its my days off. He knows I love the ocean & I love to detect,,what more can a girl ask for--besides another new detector
    In return I do a lot of things with my husband as well,like golfing,riding motorcycles,etc.having quality time with each other...
    HH
    Hopefully your wife will come around,,say a prayer for her it doesn't hurt,,,

    HAHA, that's too funny. My wife used to ask me if my "girlfriend" and I had a good time at the beach. After the first couple of rings she stopped asking me that.

    My wife and daughter don't have a problem with my appearance when I go detecting. My daughter has walked along side me while I detected before. My wife would say "Don't go running off with a hottie at the beach." After she saw me getting all geared up when we went to the beach, she knew that that wasn't going to be a possibility.

    Wear a speedo. It cuts down on stupid questions, except this one. "You got a license for that plumber's crack"?

    Don't wear the speedos. There's no room to put the junk finds. Unless you want to impress the ladies not related to you.
    I recently ran into a fellow who was packing his gear up and it was only 6:30 a.m.. I asked him if he had had any luck and his friend/brother-in-law told me that he was embarassed because the people were starting to come out onto the beach. I told him to forget those people and if he was having fun to continue doing what he was doing. They can sit on the beach and go "beep, beep, beep" all they want. I'm going to the bank when I leave the beach. I gave him some suggestions as to where to hunt and I went off, on to do my thing. Do what you're comfortable doing. I just got back from the States where apparently black socks and sandals are a fashion statement now.

    Went to the beach today, they ignored me just like they said that they would no impressive finds but it was still a good time, i like how digging in the sand is so much easier than the rock littered dirt everywhere else here in Cali. Found some trash, $0.77 in coins, and what I thought was an explosive device of some kind until I pulled it out. I dug about 9-10 inches down and the first thing that I saw was a rusty piece of metal in the shape of a pipe that was covered in warning labels. It ended up being a nearly used up can a silly string, but I was real nervous handling that thing before I knew what it was. I wanted to keep going but it was a small beach and after an hour there were so many people I couldn't go 5 feet in any direction without stepping on someone's towel
